Meditation Joy and Inner Purpose

In this series, perfect both for newcomers and those more experienced, we will explore the relationship between meditation, happiness and a deeper sense of purpose in our lives. Buddhist meditation teaches us how to access and maintain inner joy, even when experiencing difficulties.

Dana Fuchs, Buddhist meditation teacher in Harlem

Connecting to the natural joy within our mind opens us up to recognizing and identifying with the potential for happiness, love and other good qualities that exist within each and every one of us. The emphasis will be on how to integrate our practice of training the mind with every aspect of our life: work, family, friends, down-time etc.

Each class consists of guided meditations and clear explanations, as well as an opportunity to ask questions.
